  1. Gen 5 IP: Can I easily replace the large clock with the "tach/clock"

    Electrical Systems
    My new (to me) '85 Caballero has the large clock in the IP. I can pick up a tach w/clock from a wrecked MonteCarlo. Can I swap this in without doing much extra wiring? Is a tach connection already contained in my IP wiring loom? Thanks in advance, Mike
